Six Gilmore Artists and Gilmore Young Artists

Did you know our committee of anonymous jurors is deep into the selection process for the 2024 Gilmore Artist and Gilmore Young Artists? As you may recall, we could not name a 2022 Gilmore artist due to the pandemic precluding performing worldwide. Look forward to a new round of talent being announced within the year! 

Until then, We are always proud to hear about the ascending careers of everyone in our family of artists – which numbers eight Gilmore Artists and 38 Gilmore Young Artists. Enjoy reading about some of their careers below. 

2002 Gilmore Artist Piotr Anderszewski will be an Artist Teacher in Residence for the 2024 Gilmore Piano Festival Fellowships, for which applications recently opened. He will also perform during the Festival. In May, 2018 Gilmore Artist Igor Levit will curate the inaugural Piano Fest for the Lucerne Festival, where he will be joined by Gilmore favorite Fred Hersch, Johanna Summer, Anna Vinnitskaya, and Alexei Volodin.
